Devin Funchess Compared To Rest Of NFC South WR1s

they have a diverse set of receivers who they spread the ball around to. 

Does not downgrade how good Michael Thomas is. Saints are just smart enough to use all their weapons.

Michael Thomas is still a very good receiver. I mean, just look at his week 3 game against us alongside what he did to Buffalo.

exactly why they got rid of Brandin Cooks, they spread the ball to everyone they weren't going to pay Cooks #1 WR money

I appreciate the statistical analysis, but the guy just looks the part.  That's always more important.  The stats are reassuring, but you can see when a guys got it.  Keep building that confidence Fun.

To be fair to the rest of the receivers, Funchess has played 10 games, while they've played 9.

the YPC value still stands, which is pretty damn good.

The focus really is on the past two games where Funchess shifted to WR1. Granted, small sample size, but still very encouraging.

can't believe what a bust Julio has been for my fantasy team

Yep and I have mike Evans who has been worse. Those other 3 guys were drafted in probably the first  2 rounds. Funchess probably went 10-12 range

Trade him for a 6th round pick tho rite? Maybe the Huddle will stop giving up on players younger than 25 (*cough* Worley *cough*) and give them a chance to develop.

Do you not realize that posting random social media posts from a year ago doesn't mean anything at all. Watch the Aints games this year. He hasn't been much of a threat at all. There have been well over a dozen WRs better than him. This year and last year.

Where? Lol. Thomas is top 8 in receptions and yards. He's having the least talked about season ever, for a guy on pace for 1,200 yards. Catches over 70% of the balls thrown his way, again. MT just comes to work every Sunday and grinds it out. He catches the ugly poo. Across the middle. In traffic. Dudes a beast. Saints just aren't throwing the ball as much. 

He's one of 4 guys to have 65+ receiving yards in 4 straight games. 

Oh, and this...

Agreed, was just saying.

  I'm a fan of Michael Thomas. But I'm still a little disappointed by him this season, after his rookie year. TG and Brandon Coleman have done as much if not more, to impact games.

 On topic, glad DF is doing well. I would feel better about him as WR1 though if he had shown this kind of production over a season. I will still be happier when Greg returns.

don't think that's Thomas' fault, it's just a product of a Sean Payton lead team where they pass the ball around to so many people they really don't consider anyone their #1 WR

I don't mean to criticise him and you're right about NO's style of play. Nonetheless I expect he and the NO team and fans might have hoped for more. I guess what I'm saying is he hasn't clearly stepped into the WR1 role after the departure of Cooks, so as to be considered on the same level as Julio and Mike Evans.

After a couple of years of "I'm not impressed by him" and "he's not good" and "he can't catch", the new narrative around here is "he's gotten a lot better". And that is true, he's a better player because time = experience = improvement.....given that the player in question is a good player. Give Jimmy Clausen 3 years and he's still Jimmy Clausen. Or Dwayne Jarrett. Or whoever.

Funchess has always been good for us. He has always had the ability and now that he's in a position to show out, he is.

People act like if a guy's not all pro level from the first snap of his rookie year, he's a bust.
